October Vegan Recipe Club via Zoom

Tuesday, October 18, 2022
6:30pm - 7:30pm

The cookbook selection for October is Provecho by Edgar Castrjón.

At the culmination of Hispanic Heritage month we will be using recipes from what has been called “the definitive plant-based Mexican cookbook.”

Provecho features Edgar’s ingenious vegan recipes that honor the traditional, often meat-heavy classics of Mexican and Latin American culture while cooking with compassion. Many take thirty minutes or less, rely on readily accessible ingredients, and feature Salvadoran and Colombian influences. It has been called “one of the best cookbooks of the year.”

If you are curious about vegan cooking, this club is for you! Each month participants make three recipes from popular cookbooks then share their reflections with the group. Novice to expert cooks are welcome, as are interested non-cooks. Registration not required.

You may download the recipes using the link below or pick them up at East Lake Library, 2727 E. Lake Street, Minneapolis, MN 55406. Printed recipe packets are available at the library’s Safe Pick-Up Station. Simply check in with the greeter and ask for the Vegan Recipe Club packet. If you would like contactless pick-up, please call the library during open hours and request curbside service.
